2008 in review

Fabrics I bought last Saturday when I finally went out after our snow storm.


Fabrics I am using on a child size trip around the world. The lady whom requested the quilt wanted pinks and lavenders so this is what I came up with.


Orange fabric is a Christmas gift from my BIL. I like it and I am thinking a nice apron.
I used 40 spools of thread and 156 prewound bobbins in 2008.
Here is a list of projects I did during the year:
Tops started in 07 and completed in 08
Gail's Ghouls
pink/black quilt
Fiddling with Finn
Anniversary quilt

I also made a shirt for my husband, made 5 diapers for my grandson, made soap, quilted 20 quilt tops for charity, knitted 4 pair of sock, 1 pair of mittens, and 9 pair of slippers.
I guess it was a productive year after all. I sometimes feel like I don't get much accomplished.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

Oooh pretty fabrics you bought there...and that is quite a lot of thread and bobbins you used last year!!! WOW! Isn't it neat to keep track of things like that? Do you ever track how many hours you spend on a project?

You're right, sometimes you get more done than you think. I started keeping a list of quilts I finished just for that reason--gives me satisfaction to look back and know I do *finish* things!
